Oh Holy Crap this was me

And we got between 10 and 25 cents a bale, which was good money.



But those crazy bastards are in short sleeves.  You always put on a long sleeve shirt, even in August, because that hay will cut the ever-living shit out of your arms.  Short sleeves = bleeding forearms.

Up where I lived it was 1.5 tons of hay per horse for the winter.  Mom had two horses,  Neighbors had more, and they always needed help bucking bales.  This is how I earned some cash during the summer.  Brings back memories, it does....

I knew this. You knew this. EVERYONE knew this!

There was never any Trump-Russia collusion

There was never any collusion. The entire debacle has been a Deep State plot to depose a president. The Deep State-promulgated disillusionment about our country’s true power nexus and electoral process has done much to erode the faith of a generation not yet baptized in the fires of partisan destruction. 
(.....) 
California Congressman Devin Nunes has battled back with legal countermeasures related to congressional oversight from the very beginning. America’s Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, though at times muddling the defense narrative on his cable news appearances, never wavered in his conviction that the entire trope was a lie. In his cable appearances, Trump legal adviser Joe diGenova could barely contain his scorn for the debacle that was taking place. Even liberal Alan Dershowitz has called out the unprecedented prevarication used to float what credible analysts have labeled an “attempted coup.”

The entire Trump-Russia hoax was designed to damage Trump and the GOP.  Nothing more.  It was a Democrat Party fever dream that they pushed for the sole purpose of trying to reverse the 2016 election, aided and abetted by the Democrat Media Complex.

I don't think the vast majority of Democrats even thought there was ever any collusion.  I think they were pushing the narrative just as a political action in order to damage the GOP.  There might be a few people who are stupid enough to think it actually happened, but the rest of the people pushing this hoax are simply amoral, evil people who use lies in order to gain political power.

It's that simple.

Congressional Jihadi Caucus flies to California to fete with terrorist-lovers CAIR

Also, I don't want to hear one damn word from the Democrats about my carbon footprint, or how we're all gonna die if we don't stop using fossil fuels.

Newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar will jet off to Los Angeles next month to keynote a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a terror-tied organization that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in U.S. history. 
On March 23, Omar will speak at CAIR-Los Angeles’ 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where tables will cost $500.

Hamas-loving terrorist supporting Somali from Minnesota?  Check.
Terrorist supporting organization?  Check.
Same political party that wants to ban plane travel for Normal Americans flying across the country for a banquet?  Check.

And that's the group who controls the House of Representatives, and huge chunks of every major city in America.  And they are nuttier than squirrel turds.

St. Valentine is also a martyr. Just so ya know.

Once again, I don't celebrate Valentine's Day.  It's a made-up holiday.  A made up day that spawned an entire industry of buying things you don't need or should already have.  (Don't need flowers.  Should already have chocolate.)

So as I did last year, here's a brief synopsis of who St. Valentine actually was.

Valentine became famous for marrying couples who were in love but couldn’t get legally married in Rome during the reign of Emperor Claudius II, who outlawed weddings. Claudius wanted to recruit lots of men to be soldiers in his army and thought that marriage would be an obstacle to recruiting new soldiers. He also wanted to prevent his existing soldiers from getting married because he thought that marriage would distract them from their work. 
When Emperor Claudius discovered that Valentine was performing weddings, he sent Valentine to jail. Valentine used his time in jail to continue to reach out to people with the love that he said Jesus Christ gave him for others. 
He befriended his jailer, Asterious, who became so impressed with Valentine’s wisdom that he asked Valentine to help his daughter Julia with her lessons. Julia was blind and needed someone to read material for her to learn it. Valentine then became friends with Julia through his work with her when she came to visit him in jail. 
Emperor Claudius also came to like Valentine. He offered to pardon Valentine and set him free if Valentine would renounce his Christian faith and agree to worship the Roman gods. Not only did Valentine refuse to leave his faith, he also encouraged Emperor Claudius to place his trust in Christ. Valentine’s faithful choices cost him his life. Emperor Claudius was so enraged at Valentine’s response that he sentenced Valentine to die. 
Before he was killed, Valentine wrote a last note to encourage Julia to stay close to Jesus and to thank her for being his friend. He signed the note: “From your Valentine.” That note inspired people to begin writing their own loving messages to people on Valentine’s Feast Day, February 14th, which is celebrated on the same day on which Valentine was martyred. 
Valentine was beaten, stoned, and beheaded on February 14, 270. People who remembered his loving service to many young couples began celebrating his life, and he came to be regarded as a saint through whom God had worked to help people in miraculous ways. By 496, Pope Gelasius designated February 14th as Valentine’s official feast day.


So we have a guy who was violently executed because of his Christian faith.  Now who wants some chocolate?

I'd like to point out that under Democrat rule, there's a good chance that being a martyr might just start being a thing again.

We've been fed lies for so long that the sound of truth is jarring to the ear.

And it is the truth.

(W)hen men ran the world and women ran society we had a chance to conduct our lives in some semblance of balance, but women have abdicated their running of society and thus, it has collapsed dramatically. Women forced their way into the running-the-world deal and now we have a world gone mad. And the beautiful society which we Western women built is in tatters. Moms decided they were the same as men so they deserted the home and babies to grab their briefcases and rush out to run the world.
By the way, the person talking is the sister of a Feminist "hero".  Apparently someone decided to try to get a happy word from the sister of this feminist icon.

Tapson: In obituaries upon Kate’s passing, the news media wrote largely glowingly of her influence, but what do you think the good and bad of her feminist legacy has been? 
Millett: As I scan the wreckage of our beautiful America, knowing that my own sister was in great part responsible, I feel as if my heart has been kicked down the stairs. So, on pondering this question about the good and the bad of militant feminism, it reminds me of the joke in which the reporter asks, “Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?”

And reflecting on the mental illness of the feminists and their leftist allies.

Most everyone on the left is atheistic, depressed, dark and miserable, and they want us all to be miserable. Winston Churchill said, “Socialism results in the equal sharing of misery.” They detest happiness. Nothing makes them more miserable than another’s happiness. There is no more comedy! Since they swooped in and took over Hollywood and Broadway, everywhere you search for comic relief is dark, dark, dark. Surf through 200 TV channels and it is grim, grim, grim and then there’s a dismemberment. Our “entertainment” has become death, terror, horror and filth.


Just read it all, if only to give your brain a wash of truth to help cleanse the filth of leftist nihilism from it that builds up like barnacles on a ship's hull.

The FakeNews folks are working overtime this week to protect the Democrats

Oddly enough, there's also no screaming hysterical cries coming from Hollywood demanding that Democrats resign.  Gosh, I wonder why?

The same game is being played with the Green New Deal proposal. 
“I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane rights, of let’s hop a train to California, of you’re not allowed to own cows anymore,” Trump said in the El Paso speech. White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post Philip Rucker let his 340,000 followers on Twitter know that this was “false” and that “no one” had proposed any such thing. David Weigel, another well-read political reporter at The Post, who had earlier co-bylined a piece with the misleading headline “Ocasio-Cortez retracts erroneous information about Green New Deal,” retweeted Rucker’s falsehood to his 450,000 followers. 
First of all, even if Ocasio-Cortez did walk back her pitch, it was proposed. This might be inconvenient, but it’s also indisputable. Simply because a politician pulls a proposal that’s been dragged across the entire internet and beaten senseless does not mean its existence has been expunged from the record. 
The authors of the Green New Deal were very clear that their plan was a “massive transformation of our society” with “clear goals and a timeline.” Those goals included eliminating “combustion engines” and air travel and beef. It was the bill’s authors who wrote about “economic security” for those who are “unwilling to work.” They simply hadn’t come up with all the nuts and bolts yet. And, yes, a bunch of presidential candidates endorsed these ideas, while the FAQ was up. 
Secondly, Ocasio-Cortez never really walked back her proposal, anyway. A journalist with access to the celebrated socialist congresswoman might want to take a break from running interference and ask her if the schemes found in the original Green New Deal factsheet are still worthy goals. Instead, they’re letting Ocasio-Cortez write their copy for them.


Truth #1:  The media is nothing more than Democrat Operatives with bylines.
Truth #2:  If it weren't for double standards, the Democrat Media Complex would have no standards at all.

Clarity

A former transgender wakes up.

I believe that gender identity is a fraud perpetrated by psychiatry, the likes of something the United States and other nations hasn’t experienced since the lobotomy era. As a result, I have returned to my male birth sex. 
On January 25, 2019, in the State of Florida, the Marion County Department of Motor Vehicles in Ocala, Florida issued me a male driver’s license. Ocala, Florida has been my home since July 2018. 
In the days ahead, I will be taking further steps to restore my birth sex to male more formally.

Now this guy apparently looked around, realized that the whole tranny thing was BS, and went back to being a guy.  I'm genuinely happy for him.

But what about the kids who are being given hormones blockers or testosterone and allowed to chop off their wienie or lop off their boobs because the Left wants to weaponize mental illness?

Anyone out there still think that's a good idea?  Because I have a two-by-four that just needs a few more dents in it....

Went running this morning

Holy cow, I've lost my wind.  I guess since I really haven't been able to go running since the middle of October, that's four months without running.  It's amazing how much you lose in that time.  Luckily I have access to a gym at work, so I've been making sure I don't turn into Fatty McFatcakes, but dang it, I've got a couple of months to get back to where I was before all of this crap with my foot started happening.

Yep. Pretty much

Linda Fox writes about people leaving the San FranSicko area, and a few truths they need to understand.

So, 1 by 1, this women’s social circle is developing gaping holes in it. In her naiveté, she implores the residents who see fleeing CA  refugees to realize that they are good people, just hoping for a better life. 
And, I’m sure she believes that. 
They may have ‘good hearts and big dreams’, but what the resistant old residents of the new locations are wary of is the newcomers’ refusal to recognize several important things:

Go read the whole thing.  Understand that as a guy from Idaho, we have a rather visceral reaction when we find out that Kalifornians are moving in next door.  This reaction is a learned response.  There's nothing quite like having people move in who

1 -  Don't respect property rights (tear-assing around on four-wheelers, including through YOUR pasture land, and they don't even bother to close the gate behind them when they trespass)

2 - Demand that YOU conform to THEIR standards (when their standards are the reason they fled whatever stinking hellhole they came from)

3 - Sneer down at anyone local and label them as "hicks" or "rednecks" (but we were smart enough to not impose stupid legislation on our neighbors and make the whole place unlivable, much like Kalifornia did)

4 - Generally act in such a manner as to make yourself a pariah with anyone who's from the location.  (Loud statements of "Oh I love the scenery but have you seen the way they DRESS here?" do not help your cause)

Having lived in Los Angeles, I can honestly say that there's maybe four or five people out of the entire millions that I would welcome into my home town.  As for the rest, they need to stay there.  Don't pollute my home.  I would tell Kalifornians who are thinking about moving to Idaho to go read Fox's list, but I doubt it would do any good.  I've seen the kind of people who live in the San FranFreakShow area, I've worked with them, and I don't think they have the capability to actually learn anything from that list.  Arrogance and Ignorance combined, weaponized with Marxism, inflicted on America.  These are the people who allow drug addicts to shit on their streets.  And now they want to move to my town?  Why?  So they can let drug addicts shit on the streets up there?

I've come to agree with more folks that we're not voting our way out of this mess.

Ow. Knees hurt

Lots of pomp and ceremony yesterday. Which means lots of standing.  "BRING YOUR UNITS TO ATTENTION!"  Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  The more rank being moved around, the more you stand at attention or parade rest or at ease.  Anyways, lots of standing.  Standing for that length of time used to hurt a little bit when I was younger.  Now that I'm not some young buck, standing for hours on pavement now hurts the next day.  Gah.  And I have good boots with good insoles.  I'm going to see a lot of people limping around today.

Attended a retirement ceremony yesterday

Another pal gone.  It's the way of things.



One day it'll be me.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't kinda looking forward to it.  The body's starting to give out, little by little.  I'd like to enjoy my time after the military while I still have the physical capabilities to do so.

Words of Wisdom

There's long been a short list of things to do if you want to avoid living in poverty:

1)  Don't do drugs.
2)  Graduate high school.
3)  Wait until you're married to have kids.

All of those imply a modicum of self control.  Robert McCain has another list that's very similar:

1)  Work Hard.
2)  Live Cheap.
3)  Save your money.

The rest of his post is a refutation of a socialist who is living large of of capitalism.  But that's the case with all socialists, isn't it?  They have to cannibalize a capitalist economy in order to fund their socialist pipe dream.  Louder with Crowder once pointed out that capitalism doesn't require a billionaire to exist in order for their system to function, while socialism, who's adherents demonize the rich, require millionaires and billionaires to exist in order to fund their immoral system.

And as an aside, take a good look at the photo of that socialist twink, Anand Giridharadas.  Hair done just so, face made up, wearing a MOTORCYCLE JACKET that I guarantee hasn't seen one second of actual ride time.  This is a guy living large like a fat tick on a well-fed dog.  But like all socialists, he'll kill the dog, and then blame the dog for not paying it's fair share, while he continues to live large on the efforts of others.

After all, that's what the adherents of socialism all want.  Hell, Hugo Chavez was worth billions, and Venezuela is a socialist hellhole of poverty and despair.  All those socialists think that they're going to be Hugo Chavez, and they have no problem with we Normal Americans being forced to eat our pets to survive as long as they can continue to wear fancy leather jackets and be applauded by their peers for being so noble.

The simple truth is that digging your way out of poverty requires a few simple rules, and a modicum of self control.  I've gone from eating Top Ramen three meals a day to driving a new car, having a motorcycle, living a happy life and eating damn well.  And I did it with self control and NOT demanding that others pay my way.

But that's the rub, innit?  Socialists don't have much self control at all with other people's money, and they always demand that someone else pay their way.

This is my shocked face. Look how shocked I am.

People knew that Democrat Justin Fairfax, the Lt Governor of Virginia, was a rape-y rapist before he got elected.

The woman who has accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) of sexual assault informed Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.) of the incident more than a year ago, an aide told The Hill on Wednesday. 
An aide to Scott told The Hill that Vanessa Tyson first reached out to the congressman in October 2017 to express concerns about Fairfax, who was then a candidate for lieutenant governor. 
Tyson sent another message to the congressman that November expressing a desire to speak with Scott about the issue, an aide said.

Yep, that's the same rapist who likes to shout out "FUCK THAT BITCH!" when discussing the woman he raped.  SJWs always project.  That's SJW Rule #3.  If they're accusing you of being rapists, you should probably start digging into their past and see when they raped or sexually assaulted someone.

I was there in Virginia while the election was going on, and I remember listening to the adverts and the interviews and all the radio speeches, and the thing that I remember most is how creeped out I got from the Democrat side.  Ed Gillespie was no great thing.  He was a milquetoast, squishy "moderate" who thought that just being nice would get him a win.  But Northam and all the Democrats who got on the radio made my skin crawl.  Northam especially was this smarmy, lecturing, arrogant asshole from top to bottom, and it just got worse from there.  I think this whole episode of disaster and being hung by your own rules couldn't happen to a better group of arrogant, elitist, out-of-touch Marxists.  But of course, the Virginia GOP is too stupid to take advantage of it.

Had our priest over for dinner last night

Lots of food.  Then cigars.  Then dessert.  Then more talking.  Got to bed far too late.  So you might get shorted here today, because I didn't wake up in time for my usual news perusal.

Truth




I loved the fact that Trump took the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party head on during the SOTU speech.

Tuesday, February 05, 2019

The SOTU speech

Trump:  Nearly 5 million people have been lifted off of food stamps!

Democrats wearing white:  *refuse to clap*

Well, I guess I see who their base is, right?

Trump:  Hispanic and black unemployment is at it's lowest in recorded history!

All Democrats:  *refuse to clap*

That's a good look for them.

UPDATE:  I see the Democrats are going with their tried and true look of sitting on their hands and looking pissed off at America's success.

UPDATE 2:  OH MY GOD THE GOP IS CHANTING "USA" AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE PISSED!  I'm laughing my ass off!

UPDATE 3:  Cory Booker looks like he's desperately trying to keep his anal plug from popping out.

UPDATE 4:  The googly-eyed socialist, Ocasio-Cortez, can't even clap for putting sex traffickers behind bars.  Telling.

UPDATE 5:  Trump sucks with a Tele-Prom-Ter.  He does.  The speech is good, but the delivery is stilted.

UPDATE 6:  Granny Rictus' dentures must be flopping around again.  She keeps trying to put them back into place.  Or maybe Trump has gotten her so pissed of that she's chewing on the inside of her mouth.  I hope it's option 2.

UPDATE 7:  I'm looking at the ribbons on the vet who helped liberate Dachau.  This is an honest to god war hero, and he's got a rather common set of ribbons.  I think the modern day Army could use a little lesson from that.  The Marines have it more right - AWARDS are for special situations.  You need to bust your butt for an award.  Stop making the Army look like 3rd World generals.

It was a good speech, but the teleprompter reading drove me up the wall.  Half an hour speech more or less, which is far, far better than the droning of Obama or GWB.  And it jabbed all the right people at the right time.

Well &*^#

It seems like everything is getting me pissed off these days.  Tonight it was the realization that the Ragin' Mrs., in her infinite ability to take what works and try to improve it, put an "ancient" salt into the spice mix I was using to make sweet Italian sausage.  It's some fancy salt that tastes much saltier than regular salt.  And now I have six pounds of sausage that are saltier than the ocean, that give me indigestion from eating them.

She keeps insisting that she can use them to make various dishes, but I'm about to just throw it all away and never look at it again.

If the GOP were smart.... hell, I should just stop there.

They would help Howard Schultz get into the race as an independent.  It would help fracture the Democrat Party, which has long been taken over by far-Left Marxists, perverts, and baby-murdering psychos.  Anyone who can help yank it back to the middle can only be a good thing.  But Glenn Reynolds has it right:

The parties’ biggest fear isn’t that someone from the other party will win. It’s that someone from outside the Beltway Uniparty will win.

And the GOP no longer represents it's own voters, as proven by their complete and utter refusal to do anything about border security, spending, or any of the ideas it claims to support when they had the opportunity.

Covington kids punch back

This is so awesome, I want to rub it all over my body and go streaking at an NHL game.

Attorneys representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family indicated on Friday that they have sent letters for potential lawsuits to over 50 entities ranging from Democratic politicians to celebrities to media figures.

YES!  Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!  Sue the bastards, hit them where it hurts, and make them bleed!  It's about damn time that someone finally yanked on the rope that these anti-American shitwads have used to fashion their nooses!

I don't just want that list of people sued, I want them excoriated on the public square for their hatred and inhumanity.  They can all go out of business, and then they can all go to hell.

I know my wife is going to heaven

Because she has to put up with my BS.  She just got done making some Monte Christo-type sammiches for lunch, and topped them with an over-easy egg.  So we sat down to eat some lunch.

Me:  Yeah, this is a really good Monte Carlo type sammich!

Her:  Christo.  Monte Christo.

Me:  Oh, right.  Carlo is the car, Christo is the sammich.

Her:  Just think of the Count.

Me:  What does Sesame Street have to do with a sammich?

Her:   ......

Me:  ONE!  ONE husband beaten with a rolling pin!  Ah ah ah aaaaaaaah!

Her (rubbing her forehead):  I love you, honey.

I'm going to a friend's house this afternoon for good food and good company.  Apparently they'll be watching a football game too.  I'll be outside with a cigar and a glass of brandy, because fuck the NFL sideways with a chainsaw.  The biggest problem I have with the Super Turd Bowl is that someone is going to win it.

The blunt truth: Democrats have no problem murdering babies

In fact, they're actively working to murder as many babies as possible.



Here's my question, for anyone who might be on the fence - given that the Democrat Party has no problem murdering babies just because they're inconvenient, what in the world makes anyone think that the Democrat Party wouldn't round you up, put you in a box car and ship you off to a death camp once you become "inconvenient" to them?

Friday, February 01, 2019

Sigh

People...  I don't know if you've heard about this recently, but...  it's cold.

Tens of millions of Americans braved Arctic-like temperatures on Thursday as low as minus 56 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 49 Celsius) that paralyzed the U.S. Midwest and were blamed for at least 21 deaths.

When the Ragin' Mrs. and I first got to Wisconsin, it got to -46 degrees.  And we moved there from Puerto Rico.  Yet, somehow, we knew enough to NOT go outside without appropriate clothing.

Yes, people have been found dead.  I got that.  Let me be heartless right here, m'kay?  I'm going straight to the "Ohmygodhowcouldyousaythat" zone.

If people get drunk and wander outside in -50 degrees, they probably deserved to die.

If people get high, crawl into an abandoned house and freeze to death, then I'm going to guess that they weren't really a contributing member of society.

I do feel sorry for the older folks with dementia who went outside in their underoos and froze to death.  I have no idea what they must have gone through, other than it was painful.  But if you're one of those people who died because you wanted to pull a stupid prank, or you got drunk and locked yourself out of your house, or you're a crackhead who won't go to a shelter because they won't let you smoke crack in there, and you end up a human popsicle?

Well...  that's what is called natural selection, folks.  The stupid people die off, and makes the human race smarter by their subtraction.

Let the hate mail commence.

Running

Put some new insoles in my running shoes.  Tried them out for about a mile.  Everything seems to be in order, with no new pain or stabbing sensations in my foot.

I might just be back to running.  Lightly, at first.  But running nonetheless.  Oh happy day!

I know why I drive a small car

Because if I had a big truck, I'd be ramming people off the road.  Like the slack-jawed crackhead who tailgated me for miles as I was following behind a work truck who was doing the speedlimit.  It wasn't just the tailgating, it was the passing me (on a double-yellow line) only to do a hard braking, swerving maneuver once you realized that I had a GINORMOUS FUCKING BUCKET TRUCK IN FRONT OF ME, which you were too oblivious to notice prior to attempting to illegally pass me, on a double yellow line, while flying past an intersection.

That mouth-breathing fucking retard put my life in danger, plus the lives of everyone else around him, and for what?  To get to where he was going five seconds sooner? 

If I had a truck, I would have run him off the road.  As it is, my car damn near had a stripe going down the side of it.  And yeah, I followed him a for a good long while, with my middle finger getting quite a bit of air-time.  I wanted that drooling fuckwit to pull over, but he wouldn't.  He just stomped on the gas.  Like his crappy, pathetic piece of shit hoopdy can outrun me.  Uh, no, there's something called maintenance that needs to happen with a car in order for it to function properly.  I finally decided that I didn't want to be late for dinner.  My appetite was more important to me than dragging this fucking moron out of his car and beating him with a tire iron, but it was a close thing.

Gah.  Poverty is a culture, people.  So is acting that fucking selfishly.

For all the idiots out there saying that Climate Change is going to kill us all

Well, maybe, maybe not, but it's not like it was for the majority of this planet's history.



I know I'm preaching to the choir on a lot of this, but take the time to educate the people around you.

Robert Mueller is a dirty, crooked, corrupt cop, and has been for decades

That's why he was such an Obama favorite.  Barry O'Bumblefuck knew that his dirty cop would do what Barry wanted him to do.

And all it took to bring Mueller around to doing the right thing was the threat of a contempt citation by an ultra-liberal federal judge who went to Yale Law School with the Clintons. 
Of course, that wasn’t the first time Mueller’s FBI tried to broom the scandal of the four framed men. In 2002, Mueller directed the G-men to oppose state pardons for the four men because the FBI’s own evidence that exonerated them was merely “fodder for cross-examination. 
Despite the FBI’s knowledge that the men, including Peter Limone, were innocent, Mueller’s FBI claimed to a state board that the incontrovertible exculpatory evidence “does not necessarily mean, however, that Limone or any of the other defendants is innocent – it merely means that they are entitled to a new trial.” 
By the way, one of the innocent men, Louie Greco, was in Florida the night of the murder he was falsely convicted of. One of the crooked Boston FBI agents (who died in prison in Oklahoma while facing murder charges in another gangland hit) later bragged to a local gangster about their brilliant railroad: 
“How does Louie Greco like going from Miami to death row? He wasn’t even there.”

Good lord, the FBI has been exposed as a bunch of Mafia thugs with badges, haven't they?

Kamala Harris, who slept her way to power in San Francisco, wants to take your guns

Don't listen to me on this.  Listen to her.

She’s just packing her speech with anti-gun keywords hoping to elicit the right response from anti-gun proponents, who’ll open their wallets to donate to her campaign. Much like she opened her legs to advance her career. 
Yep, I just went there. Send me your hate tweets.

No hate tweets here.  If Kamala Harris didn't have an extramarital affair with Willie Brown while he was mayor of San Fransicko, then nobody outside the Bay Area would know who the hell she is.  But because she slept her way to positions of power, and then got more power, now she's running for president.  Her qualifications are whoring herself out to men, and whoring herself out to Planned Parenthood.

She's like the female Barack Obama.  Which means the media is going to be masturbating as hard and fast as they can every time she's on screen.

Oh, you want to talk "smirking"?  Check out Harris' face every time she talks to someone who isn't worshipping at her feet.  Sneering, smirking, entitlement, and outright hatred and hostility radiate from her like heatwaves from the sun.  Remember, the Left hates you and wants you to die.  Kamala Harris, who slept her way to the top, can't even keep her hatred off her face.  She's counting on the hordes of people who hate you like she does to get her elected.

The Deep State protects its own

A Leftist judge refused to unseal documents that were used by the FBI to trash a whistleblower's house.  Because there's nothing...  INTIMIDATING....  about the FBI ransacking your house after you blow the whistle on the government covering up for Felonia von Pantsuit's crimes.  Nah.

A federal court is refusing to unseal the government documents that allowed the FBI to raid the home of an alleged recognized whistleblower last November. Judge Beth P. Gesner, the U.S. District Court of Maryland’s chief magistrate judge, "also sealed her justification for keeping the documents secret in a single-page Dec. 20 order," The Daily Caller reported. Gesner is a Clinton appointee.

Absolute bullshit.  And crap like this is why Trump won, and why he'll most likely win in 2020.  Because people are sick and tired of watching the unaccountable, politically connected criminals in Washington D.C. get away with crime after crime after crime, all while the rest of the country crumbles.

Rodger Stone had his house raided by the FBI live on the Clinton News Network.  Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, who committed multiple felonies, walks around free.  THAT is why Trump is so popular.  And the political animals in D.C. know it, which is why they're trying so hard to tear him down.

I want to make one small little quibble here

Jorge Bergolio isn't fiddling while the Church burns.  He's doing his best to burn it to the ground, because he doesn't actually care about saving souls.

There is a church in Rome called the Church of Domine Quo Vadis (Latin for “Lord, where are You going?”). It is situated on the spot where the apocryphal Acts of Peter described a meeting occurred between St. Peter and Jesus. Peter was fleeing Rome and Nero’s persecution. On his way, Peter saw Jesus walking in the opposite direction. Peter asked Him, “Domine, quo vadis?” Jesus responded, “I am going to Rome to be crucified again.” Shamed, Peter returned to Rome and was crucified, upside down. 
Pope Francis, too, has abandoned his post… except he hasn’t done by leaving Rome. Instead, he has dawdled, fiddled, and worse. He must address Archbishop Viganò’s allegations about his personal conduct. And then he must take up the sins of the victims and the perpetrators, and, with the help of bishops, priests, religious, and laity, energetically, and with a sense of urgency, clean house.

A bunch of bishops, and most the cardinals here in America, don't want to clean house.  They enjoy using the laity's money to live the good life while having sex with young men and young boys.  Why would they want to clean house?  They would actually have to practice what they preach!  Can't have that, you know! 

There are good bishops in the USA, just as there are good diocese.  Right now I attend probably one of the most conservative diocese churches in the USA, albeit a Novus Ordo church.  However, the priest offers a Latin Mass every first Sunday, so that's what I go to.  But I'm lucky.  Other Catholics have to attend a church where the priests, bishops and archbishops all essentially care more about this world than the next.  And those Catholics....  are leaving.  In droves.

The so-called leadership of the Catholic Church in America are abandoning souls in favor of fancy mansions and gay sex. 

My priest has been open about the fact that the Catholic Church in America will most likely continue to shrink.  Maybe that's what it will take for the current leadership to finally be pushed out.  We'll see.  I don't have any good answers to the problems that I see coming at us like a freight train.  I can only pray, and act within my sphere of influence.  That's all anybody can do, I guess.

Ah, the South

62 degrees on Monday.  Motorcycle weather, and I took advantage of it.

It's supposed to be snowing when I wake up this morning.  We'll see.  The worst part is that every other slack-jawed, cellphone using idiot thinks they can drive in the snow.  Ugh.

Kamala Harris is just a darker-skinned Stormy Daniels

With a better legal team.





She slept her way to the top in San Francisco, and then used her position as California Attorney General to send a SWAT team to raid the house of investigative journalists when some of her political donors (Planned Parenthood) were the subject of the story.  Since then she's done nothing of note in the US Senate except for blatant anti-Catholic bigotry.

And the Democrats love her because she's a dark-skinned woman.

This country is fucked.  

We've got the water heater set to "Screaming Hot" right now

We're cleaning just about everything we can, and we want to kill any germs on our clothing, sheets, couch covers, etc.  Which means we have to remember to add quite a bit of cold water when we just want to wash our hands.  Or when I'm doing the dishes, and I don't want to scald the skin off my fingers.

Although boy, the sheets came out nice and clean.

Stop Freaking Out about Trump opening the government for THREE WEEKS.

#1 - Trump now gets to give the State of the Union address, and if Granny Rictus tries to block it, it comes down on her.

#2 - I'll let Kurt take it from here.

So we lost this round? So what? We’ve lost before, and we’ll lose again. This is for the long-haul folks. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. There’s no magic wand where one term of Vitamin D cures a century of progressive pathology. 
Trump’s instincts have been right all along. We doubted he could win. He did. We doubted he would actually remake the courts. He has. We doubted he’d fight for the wall, but he did, and he paid a price. Who else would have withstood the heat this long? Who would have even picked the fight? 
Mitt? Jeb!? Chet the Unicorn? 
Name the Republican you want to replace him with. Who’s the guy who is going to stand up to the cultural fascists like Trump? Who’s going to fight for you harder? 
What’s his name? 
***mumble mumble mumble*** 
I CAN’T HEAR YOU! WHAT’S HIS NAME! 
Nobody.

So while people freak out about a three week timeframe, here's what's going to happen.  Trump is going to give the SOTU address with Nancy Pelosi sitting behind him, grimacing and being the raging communist bitch that she is.  And as Trump lays out his case for a border wall, the Democrats are going to act as petty and petulant as they did on the last SOTU speech.  So Trump will give an hour-long argument for the wall, and the Democrats will have to sit there and take it.

Boo-yah.

Classically under-rated

The Cherry Poppin' Daddies.  Yeah, forgive the name, it was the 90's.  But damn, they had talent.



I'm willing to bet there's orchestral musicians who can't hit the notes this guy does on trumpet.

OK, so maybe I'm not on much of a break

Because this shit has my dander up.

At any rate, I have some advice for Sandmann: it wouldn’t have mattered. If Sandman had somehow managed to walk away from Phillips, one (or more) of these things would have almost certainly resulted: Sandmann would have been criticized for disrespecting Phillips by walking away, and/or Phillips would have followed him beating that drum all the while, and/or Phillips would have focused the same technique on another boy.

This whole act that the Democrat-Media complex is putting on, that the kids in D.C. did something wrong, has just gotten me to the point that I want to see every single media outlet that pushed this bullshit line destroyed and reduced to ashes and rubble.  And Nathan Phillips, that lying bastard, should be in jail for the damage he's caused to those kids lives with his lies and bullshit.  Neo is right, it wouldn't have mattered if that kid walked away or stood there or whistled Dixie.  Philips was looking for a reason to scream racism, and there was nothing those kids could do that would have prevented it.  He was going to get his racism charge no matter what, and the media ran with it, just like Phillips knew they would do.

I hope those kids and their families sue the fucking bastards into the ground.  I hope CNN goes bankrupt, along with MSNBC and every other outlet that trashed those kids based off of 30 seconds of a 90 minute video. 

Not reported by the Drive-by Media: Dems block GOP efforts to pay workers





Congratulations, Democrats!  Your dream of impeaching Trump by refusing to pay Federal employees is working out great!  

We all knew that Democrats didn't really care about the people not getting a paycheck.  It's all political games to them.  They've just confirmed it.  Three times, as a matter of fact.  Fuck the fucking fuckers.

And of course, how much did you hear about this in the media?  I know, I know, it's a rhetorical question.  The media never reports anything that might hurt the Democrat party, which is in fact the party the media belongs to lock stock and barrel.

Taking a knee

The Mrs. has been ill.  Bronchitis.  I've been taking care of her, and now I'm getting it too.

(various words deleted because even I have standards)

So enjoy some music for the next few days, because I'm too damn tired to do anything much.

Maduro out in Venezuela

Something to keep an eye on.  In the meantime, the complete and under destruction of Venezuela under socialism is something that can be used to beat idiots like Alexandria Occasional-Cortex and other Marxists over the head.

Not that it'll do THEM any good, of course.  They're Marxists.  Reality doesn't work on them.  Facts don't work on them.  They are emotionally-driven, ideologically-programmed drones.  It's the folks watching that need to be convinced.

Anybody tried these NeoMags?

A magnetic magazine holder that lets you carry a spare mag in your front pocket.  I have one friend back home who uses it, but he dresses in slacks or business clothing.  I need to know if this thing will keep the magazine in my jeans pocket as I drive around either in a car or on a bike.

Anyone out there tried it?

And this is why Granny Rictus wanted to be Speaker so badly

So that she and her family can go take vacations on the government's dime.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world.
Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

That's one hell of a bill, eh?

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.

As usual with Socialists, they demand that we pay more money in taxes so that they can steal it and live a life of luxury.

Overall, Pelosi’s European excursion cost the Air Force about the same amount of money it would take to send a student to Harvard University for four years. Judicial Watch compared the trip to Republican Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner’s CODEL trip with multiple stops in east Asia in August 2015. The trip led by Gardner, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, cost at least $26,009.03 for commercial flights and per diems, according to records cited by Judicial Watch.

There's more in the article.  Go read it all, and understand that this vile, evil, Marxist hag has been living large off of you and I for over thirty years at this point.  I'm glad Trump cancelled her European Vacation, which by the way she was taking her family with YET AGAIN.

At this point I'm glad that Hell exists, because I know that Nancy Pelosi will be burning in hell for all of eternity.

When National Review goes under, I'll shed a tear for what might have been.

But as for right now, fuck the fucking fuckers.  In case you were actually out enjoying your life instead of watching news this weekend, the Liberal Democrat Media Complex was dog-piling on a bunch of Catholic high school kids for daring to smile while they were being abused after the March for Life.

Apparently, the few remaining non-pedophile Democrats have been feeling left out and needed a way that they, too, could ruin children’s lives. This weekend they found it. A Native American hate crime hoax targeted children from a Christian school, Covington Catholic, wrongly claiming that its students were hateful bigots taunting a defenseless old Native American elder. The truth? They’d been called “faggots” by black Muslim protesters and were deliberately provoked by the indigenous rights activist, a longtime Democrat political operative called Nathan Phillips whose “Vietnam vet” credentials are now being called into question. Far from being smug bullies as reported, Covington students were smiling so as not to get angry at being provoked by black protesters and then by a Native American elder who approached them to taunt them—in other words, they were remaining good-natured out of Christian charity. 
This is what the progressive Left in America does now: Destroy children’s lives for political gain.

We all know that the Democrat Media is the enemy of the people, and they prove it on a daily basis.  But what is sticking in the craw of so many people is how quickly and willingly the supposed "conservative" media jumped on board with the bashing.

That’s all predictable enough. Less predictable was National Review rushing out a now-deleted op-ed accusing the wrongly-accused Covington students of “evil” behavior and claiming they “might as well have just spit on the cross. Or a virtue-signalling Ross Douthat going in on Twitter without having a clue about the facts. You will recall that these are the same people constantly lecturing the rest of us about propriety, manners and restraint.
Deleted, yes, but not a single hint of remorse at publicly excoriating kids who had done nothing wrong, who's lives are now turned upside down as the Leftist hate-mob, aided and abetted by supposed "conservatives", have doxed the kids and their family members over a story that was a complete and utter lie from the very first second it crested on Twitter.

Let’s please remember all this the next time journalists, professors and talking heads on TV tell improbable tales of bigotry and hatred. Aggressive public displays of virtue are where the morally deplorable hide, which is how you know all politicians are scumbags, why social justice warriors always turn out to be perverts and felons, and why you can be confident assuming the majority of journalists are repellent, ethically sickening people. Especially the ones who claim to be Right-wing. I can take people who declare themselves my enemy. What I can’t abide is snakes, opportunists, backstabbers and liars on my own side.

National Review went full NeverTrump in 2016, to include insulting and smearing quite a few of their own readers, and they're suffering the predictable result.  Hell, both my father and I ended our subscriptions over it, as we get insulted and heckled enough by Leftists that we don't need it from people who were supposedly on our side.  Now it seems that their hatred of Trump and his supporters have allowed them to essentially jump on the Liberal Left train at every opportunity.

And let's be clear - I watched the video.  The kids did nothing wrong.  The black idiots screaming "FAGGOT!" at the kids were the problem.  The liar known as Nathan Phillips, who attempted to intimidate the kids and who provoked this entire episode, he did something wrong.  And every so-called conservative who jumped on the Liberal hate train should hang their head in shame for the rest of their lives as they enabled a Leftist mob who is now in the process of attempting to destroy the lives of those kids and their families.

The families of those kids are now publicly talking about suing.  Good sue the fucking bastards into bankruptcy.  Make the Leftist hate mob, of which the media is the ringleader, cheerleader and instigator, pay for their lies.  Fucking ruin every virtue-signaling asshole, starting with whoever the fuck is shipping that lying liar Nathan Phillips around the country so he can protest and start shit.

Make.  Them.  Pay.

For you motorcycle riders

Here's a little photo of my Airhawk seat cushion after 15,000 miles.  This thing has doubled my riding time.  Given my *ahem* age related physical issues, anything more than a couple of hours on the bike left me feeling rather beaten.  This cushion has allowed me to ride all day.  I can honestly say this is the best accessory I've purchased for my motorcycle, hands down.


The inner cushion is still good.  I only had to replace the cover. 

Y'all know I don't do product placement unless I really like it.  I'm not getting any money or even any notoriety from Airhawk.  They just work that damn well.  If you're a rider, look at their seat cushions.  They also made cushions for passenger seats.  They're worth every penny.

Things I learned from nature shows

A male salmon's "O" face looks pretty much like a human's.

https://youtu.be/rZWiWh5acbE

Yep.

Thunder

Literally.  We had storms blow through last night, and I still don't know how we didn't lose power.  Lightning was hitting close enough that the thunder was shaking me off the bed.  I felt like I was at Ft. Riley again watching the artillery fire off.

And of course, with every "KA-FUCKING-WHAM!" there was the dog letting off his "THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG OUTSIDE!" bark, which is like a mix of Chewbacca screaming and some demon from the depths of hell announcing his presence at your bedside.

I'm running on little sleep.  Don't ask me to do math right now.

This. Is. GLORIOUS!

Granny Rictus just got Trumped.

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!





I don't think I can express in words just how happy this makes me.  The Democrats have been vacationing in Hawaii, going on junkets to Puerto Rico to meet with lobbyists, and now were going on a European vacation on OUR DIME with the flimsy excuse of "going to visit the troops".  Horseshit.  Absolute horseshit, and I'm glad it got shut down.  But I'm even happier that it got shut down in such a publicly humiliating way for the Democrats.  It's ABOUT DAMN TIME.

Well, I've just found my new theme song

Now I need to find sheet music.

Democrats refuse to meet with Angel Moms, cry about furloughed federal workers instead

No, really.  Granny Rictus actually ran away from the Angel Moms so that she could pull her crocodile tears out on the capitol steps.

This rally came a day after a group of Angel Moms (mothers of those killed by illegal immigrants) wielded giant photos of their murdered children at the offices of Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 
The Angel Moms have attempted in vain all month to meet with Democrat leaders to discuss legislation to fund a U.S.-Mexico border wall. 
Angel Mom Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was killed by an illegal alien in 2012, reacted to Schumer's rally on Twitter, saying: "Really? They can still hug their children, many of us Angel moms will never b able to do that. I would give up everything to just have my son for 1 hour."

Just a reminder, the cost of illegal aliens to the USA is upwards of $135 BILLION A YEAR.  Trump wants $5.7 Billion for the wall.  That's 4% of what the USA spends on illegal aliens.  It would pay for itself in a year.

But Democrats don't care about that.  They care about importing more voters so that they can win elections with a more pliable electorate.  Democrats certainly don't care about the hard-working Americans who are affected by the tens of millions of illegal aliens who are here in this country, committing crime (to include rape, murder and drug running), driving down wages, and turning parts of this country into miniature versions of the shitholes they came from.

Memo to me: Buy more popcorn

Long Knives, indeed.  The Left eats itself, just not fast enough as it eats Normal Americans.  Still the 2020 election is going to be an exercise in seeing just how "progressive" the ProgNazis will be.  Who can be made to tow the line?  Who can be swept out like trash?  The Democrat Party is fully in the grip of Marxist delusions and tyranny, and they can't hide it any longer now that the googly-eyed socialist is the face of their party.  Oh, the Democrat-Media Complex will do their best, and now that Cankles Treason McHackingCough is out of the running, the media focus will be on how to destroy Trump.  But that's been the media focus for the past two years now, and all they've done is....  what, again?

Anyways, Tulsi Gabbard wasn't sufficiently "progressive" for the ProgNazis, and she already announced her candidacy, so she must be disposed of.  Bravo, Lefties!

CNN hack tries to use same tired line, gets bitchslapped

And it's a thing of beauty.

CNN analyst Areva Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of benefitting from “white privilege” because of his views on race Tuesday morning, to which Webb responded… that he’s black.

And he lays out a very good slapping.  I am sick and tired of the Left claiming that any white male has this mystical privilege that allows them to bypass all of the world's troubles.  C'mon down to Mississippi, let me show you some "white privilege".  If hard, grueling work constitutes "privilege", then just maybe you've got something.  If starting at the bottom of the ladder and working your way up constitutes "privilege", then sure.  But I don't need some pampered, snot-nosed, sneering liberal from a liberal bubble to tell me that I have some privilege.

FBI and Democrats (but I repeat myself) show their ass

And boy, do they ever.

In a Friday night news dump, the New York Times revealed the FBI’s surprisingly flimsy justification for launching a retaliatory investigation into President Donald Trump, their chief adversary during their recent troubled era. 
Admitting there is no actual evidence for their probe into whether Trump “worked for the Russians,” FBI officials instead cited their foreign policy differences with him, his lawful firing of bungling FBI Director James Comey, and alarm that he accurately revealed to the American public that he was told he wasn’t under investigation by the FBI, when they preferred to hide that fact.

They thought they were being smart.  They weren't.

Gillette goes full Woke

Fuck 'em.

I stopped using Gillette sometime when I was stationed in Wisconsin, because I was tired of paying out the nose for what amounted to tin-foil on plastic.  So I switched to a double-edged safety razor.  I've always used some sort of shaving soap with a brush, but now I tossed the cartridges and got a real razor.  And I've never been happier.  On a rather ironic note, one of my favorite safety razors is an antique Gillette brass safety razor that I picked up in an antique shop in Black Falls, Wisconsin.  I think it cost me $8.  I use Merkur razor blades, although sometimes I use Van der Hagen razors when I run out of my Merkur.  I get a much better shave, and I don't have to put up with virtue signaling assholes from Massachusetts.  If you're a guy, get into classic shaving.  I have multiple links under the "Be A Man" section.  Pick a real razor, and give it a go.  You'll save money in the long run, and you'll have a much better shave.

Fuck Gillette.  I watched the "advert".  They can go piss up a rope.  Let them go out of business, it's not like I use any of their products, or will use them in the future. 

Bill Whittle on the National Parks

Yeah, we're fucked

The Democrats want to make sure that they can continue their proud tradition of voter fraud and stealing elections.

If you thought the midterm elections had problems, wait until you learn about Nancy Pelosi’s plan to terminate state control over American elections. 
Democrats in Congress have announced their top legislative priority, and it isn’t health care, immigration, or taxes. Instead, they want to centralize power over elections in Washington, D.C. H.R. 1 is number one on the legislative agenda because it is the number one priority of House Democrats, leftist groups, deep-pocketed dark money, and those who use election process rules to help win elections -- or at least to cause chaos. 
The bill is a 571-page dreamscape of wild wishes and federal mandates on states. The Constitution decentralizes power over American elections and puts states in charge. H.R. 1 would undo that.

Also, while the level of malevolent evil contained in this bill is off the charts, it's impressive to watch as the Democrats actually move to do what their communist backers want them to do, while under Paul Ryan, the first day with a Republican White House, Senate and House of Republicans got us.....  pretty much nothing.  It's almost as if he didn't have a clue what he was doing.  Of course, he was doing what the Democrats wanted him to do.  I honestly believe that.

But the biggest prize in H.R. 1 is to restore Justice Department approval powers over state election law changes, known as “preclearance.” This preclearance power, struck down by the Supreme Court in Shelby County v. Holder, is the one power that unites them all. Preclearance gave radical bureaucrats at the Justice Department Voting Section, where I used to work, the power to micromanage every single state election law behind closed doors. 
Here’s how it worked: Whenever a state wanted to make an election law change, no matter how small, it needed approval from Washington, D.C. bureaucrats at the Department of Justice. Move a polling place, change the hours the election office is open, hire a new translator, change a precinct line, or move voting from the school gym to the school library? DOJ had to approve. 
Require voter ID, allow citizenship verification, increase penalties for voter fraud, enact election integrity procedures or implement programs to clean rolls? DOJ had to approve. 
And now you see why the Left wants the power back.

Oh yes, let's allow the completely corrupted DOJ to oversee election laws!  That'll make things so much better!

We're not voting our way out of this.  And part of the problem is that the Republican Party isn't really really a representative party at all.  It's just the Democrat Party with different clothing on.  If the Republican Party actually represented it's voters, there's a damn good chance the Democrats don't retake the House.  Chew on that for a while.
